I was in room 311 and I am not sure if someone was marching above me for several hours or if there is a service area up there but kept me awake! Hotel was great otherwise. Right off the highway and close to the Ohio State stadium

To stay at this hotel in the city, put me way out of my comfort zone. Once we were inside and greeted by the staff, I felt a little more comfortable. Our room was nice. My kids enjoyed the pool. It was nice that it was open late. The breakfast was also really good! There was a nice variety of breakfast foods. My family ate really good and they were ready to start the day.

Anonymous, We appreciate the 4 out of 5. Sincerely,

A good location near highway

Location: Within a couple of miles of OSU main Campus, you have access to every element of the Campus area while conveniently away for the bustle.
Friendly staff and clean rooms. Location is close to highway.

Horrible, will never stay again.

Was charged $60 bc a child dropped a piece of pizza on a pillow and they said it could not be washed out. I was called 25 mins after I checked out. I'm not sure how they had time to wash them and see if it would come out. Wouldn't recommend this hotel if you have children.

OK for price

Pros: Cheap price.
Cons: Clean and maintain the facility.
Location: It is across from the Ohio State Fair grounds and not too far from Ohio State.
This hotel is OK for the low price, but nothing to write home about. The first room we were in was on the second floor and the steps leading to that floor were in need of paint and the stairwell smelled of urine. I got us moved to the first floor and the room was ok. The bathtub drain did not drain very well. We only had it for one night and we won't be going back. Would rather pay more for a cleaner facility.
